St. Louis Fed economist David Andolfatto will address the possible effects of the Federal Reserve System's raising of short-term interest rates at a time when there is little market for federal funds because the U.S banking system is "flush" with reserves. 

Andolfatto, a vice president in the Research department, has been with the St. Louis Fed since 2009. He holds a doctorate in economics from the University of Western Ontario and a master's in economics from Simon Fraser University in British Columbia, Canada, where he is a professor.

Breakfast will start before Andolfatto's presentation, and a Q&A will follow. There is no cost to attend, but registration is required by Jan. 11. Parking is complimentary with validation.

This event is being hosted by Nikki Jackson, vice president and regional executive of the Louisville Branch of the St. Louis Fed.
